Weddings with Reverend Jim Beidle - I am an experienced professional wedding officiant based in Arlington, Washington. Aware of the many details that go into planning a perfect wedding day, I endeavor to make your ceremony planning easy, fun, and affordable. I believe the memories you create as you stand together at the altar are the ones you'll build your life on for years to come. I am committed to helping you communicate your love through meaningful vows, entertaining your guests through a joyful celebration, and bringing you into a lifetime of happiness.
I am an ordained minister and have performed weddings since 2012. Based on that experience, I've assembled several wedding packages for every style of wedding. From elopements through creative celebrations, from resort destinations to your back yard, and from the mountains to the sound, you and I create precisely the ceremony you want to celebrate your love. How do you imagine your wedding day?
As a professional officiant, I adhere to the rigid standards and the strong code of ethics chartered by the International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants - IAPWO (https://iapwo.org/). Your officiant is your guide to the legal and spiritual process of becoming married. Consequently, isn't it important that they understand and comply with the legal and ethical standards to ensure your wedding goes without a hiccup?
Although I focus on offering services in Northwest Washington, I am ready to travel to you! I have married couples in three of Washington's National Parks, whale watching tours, and at the beach. Wherever you want to tie the knot, I am ready to make it happen.
I offer a variety of wedding day services. Whether you imagine a religious ceremony, a secular celebration, or something in between, I am happy to accommodate your needs, and I am continually creating new resources to accommodate our changing times. Services include:
- Civil unions
- Interfaith ceremony
- Single religion
- Vow renewal
- Customized vows
- Micro-weddings and Mini-monies
- Traditional and themed weddings
- Themed weddings, like Santa Claus Ceremonies
